Gina K. Designs Inspiration Blog Hop - Day 2


Hello Tuesday Friends!

Welcome back!  It's day two of our Gina K. Designs blog hop!  Yesterday we showcased two very talented ladies, Melanie Muenchinger and Theresa Momber.  Today, we will share gorgeous artwork designed by Beth Silaika and Chris Dayton.  As an extra treat, we will show you our new incentive set too

This is Beth's set called Noelle Mouse:


Here is a close up of the card I made using this set.  I masked my image just a bit so that my sassy little mouse could hold a candy cane.  That led to me using the beautiful Radiant Red Fancy Foils and Gina's Ornamental Holiday Foil-Mates to create some red and white striped paper!  Even though it is hard to photograph foil, I think you can see toward the bottom how much sparkle is happening on that paper!




Next we have Chris' set, Purrfect Christmas


Her set seems retro to me, so I tried to portray that in my image coloring.  Not sure I did it, but I like the card anyway.  I masked the bottom of the tree so that I could place the ornaments underneath. I think it's a fun technique!



Nor for our incentive set.  You can have this one for free with a $75 purchase.  What a great set!


I used the Merry Christmas sentiment on this tag and I love how dainty the font is. I think it is really great for cards AND tags - just the perfect touch.



Don't forget that you could win a $50 Gina K. Designs gift certificate by visiting and commenting on each designer's post (links below)  To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.

All your cards are cute! I especially love the tag! I like to include a happy tag on many things - when sending a homemade baked gift to a friend and even when one of the kids would have a fundraiser - we always made "thank you" tags of some sort!

I love the foil paper you've used. So shiny and holiday-ish. On the Purrfect Christmas, what I like the best is how you tilted the cat a bit--giving it more of a flow. Great job.
